Thanks so much for the invite!

Here's a snippet from MY SEAL BODYGUARD!

“Besides, the couch is a hell of a lot better than some of the places I’ve slept, believe me,” Noah said.

Considering he was a SEAL, Peyton supposed that was probably true. Still, it was kind of scary to hear him implying he thought someone might break in while she was home.

Peyton chewed on her lower lip as she watched Noah toss the pillow on the couch, then shake out the blanket. It occurred to her then that while she and Noah had talked about family, living in Virginia Beach, and a lot of other stuff, he hadn’t mentioned having a wife, or even a girlfriend for that matter.

5 sentences:
As Sharon drifted into sleep, loud music, cigarette smoke, pink and blue lights, dancers, and David's intense eyes all swirled around her, catching her in their coils before moving farther and farther away.

Harshness of grating metal ripped through the silence invading Sharon's consciousness.

She bolted upright, "Whaaa...who? Who's there?"

Terrified, she ran into the kitchen and grabbed one of the knives from the drawer.

He pulled up the collar on his Pendleton. “Protect yourself,” he mumbled into his coffee. He took a sip and sighed as the crisp air of early summer mixed with the invigorating taste of a strong, powerful dark roast. This was the life he wanted—one without the guns of war, the heat of the desert, or having to say “Yes sir” to yet one more idiot.

Boom! Coffee sprayed across the deck. Reed’s training kicked in as he took cover behind his chair.

A suspenseful read with a paranormal twist and a chick lit-ish tone.


Five-sentence snippet:

What if, under all those bandages, my brain’s a pulpy, irretrievable, mushed-up mess?

The men continue talking, the doctor’s tone placating, the Carson guy—my husband—irate, and I hear nothing. I’m looking at my comatose body, the wires and tubes and assisted breathing, and all I see is brain squidge. Oozing, gloopy brain squidge.

My past may be gone forever, and I haven’t the slightest clue if it was one worth keeping.

Just as God placed the rainbow in the sky as a promise to Noah that He would never flood the earth again, He’d generously gifted him with a new idea.

His next mission would be served as The Rainbow Killer. The specimens would share nothing in common, making him impossible to catch. But every murder would end in spectacular colors. In hues of the rainbow.
This could be his claim to fame. A lasting legacy.

He couldn’t wait to begin.

Chaps might have been designed to protect cowboys’ legs from brush and other dangers while riding, as Mike informed me, but they have an interesting side effect of showcasing the buns for the viewing pleasure of anyone who happens to sit behind the chutes.
